Storyline

Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by Anonymous

A winner
21 July 2012 | by droogsandyarblesSee all my reviews

This one is a real winner. Enjoyable enough to make me watch it twice in the same day. An actual comedy that made me laugh. Very well-written. Exceptionally cast and acted. This is a feel good movie.. I have no equivalent term for chick flick for a gay guy flick that isn't remotely unacceptable...but this is one of those. I watched this with a group of straight friends who loved it as much as me, laughed as hard as me and thought it was well worth the time, the popcorn and beer. I would love to see more films with this much thought about a gay subject with just as much realism as comedy. If you want to spend a little bit of an hour and half laughing your butt off... load this one up, bring in your friends... and just be prepared to have a dang good time.
